Mechatronics & Robotics Engineering Technology Program Description
The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering Technology provides the student with the necessary knowledge and training to become a professional in the diverse field of Mechatronics Engineering. Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering Technology is a multidisciplinary segment of the engineering field. Rather than embrace traditional divisions of engineering as distinct entities, the Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering Technology degree combines electrical engineering, computer engineering, mechanical engineering, control engineering, telecommunications engineering, robotics and cybersecurity. The result is the unification of principles from the various disciplines to create a more economic, reliable, and simplified system. Mechatronics and Robotics engineers are the link between technicians and engineers, and work from conception of a project to the completion of the project. <br> <br>The focus of the Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering Technology program is rooted with an emphasis on Mechatronics Engineering. This is a multidisciplinary degree where the curriculum provides greater depth in the technology of the field, specifically robotics and mechatronics, as opposed to the previously submitted proposal for the Bachelor of Science in Mechatronics Engineering. <br> <br>Graduates will be able to effectively communicate concepts, designs, theories, and supporting material with others in the Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering Technology field; Investigate current Mechatronics and Robotics Systems problems; Complete a thorough review of the issue, formulate hypotheses; Collect and appropriately analyze data, interpret the findings,&nbsp; Provide a report to others in the field to improve the field of Mechatronics systems and provide solutions to Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering Technology challenges. <br>
